The final chapter considers briefly how Ptolemaic ideology and propaganda have refashioned the memory of Achaemenid rule into something explicitly negative, thus coloring all subsequent accounts of the period. It then discusses and recapitulates how studying experience provides a way around these Greek-influenced accounts of the Persians, and provide a clearer picture of the complexity of ancient imperialism.
